Herb Garden

A year or so ago I attempted to start a potted herb garden on my porch because it looked adorable. Then I found out that my porch is so blazing hot that any living thing that couldn't live in a desert is basically incinerated and has no chance of survival. I wanted an herb garden, but I wanted it close to my kitchen (which is why the back deck is so perfect). Well I finally had a lightbulb moment (not sure why it took me so long to figure this out), but I built it right off the edge of the deck. Remember that massive pile of bricks we uncovered in our backyard? Well, they came in handy. And now I have a sweet little herb garden in very close proximity to my kitchen.
Side note: I have to repaint the rocks because I wasn't smart enough to check if the paint was waterproof. I figured this out when I watered the plants this morning.
